The exhibition showcases two specially commissioned designs for Chatsworth. Raw Edges presents Endgrain seating, situated in the Sculpture Gallery. This piece’s clever use of vibrant hues neatly references the 6th Duke’s desire for a colourful space to house his sculpture collection when the gallery was originally built in the 19th Century. Counterpart by Tom Price will be on display in the Chapel and consists of two blocks that sit together, but are materially and diametrically different.
The dark block is made from coal, a reference to the mineral rights held by the Devonshire family while the other, lighter block directly references crystals in the mineral collection at Chatsworth.
